The National Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) has awarded more than $5.3 million to 12 University of Toronto research projects and among them are three Department of Computer Science researchers.
The objective of NSERC’s strategic project grants program is to increase research and training in targeted areas that could strongly enhance Canada's economy, society and/or environment within the next ten years. The program is aimed particularly at funding early-stage, high-risk projects that might otherwise have trouble attracting the funds needed to carry out their research.
The DCS recipients of NSERC Strategic Project Grants are:
- Ryan Johnson, computer science, U of T Scarborough, “A novel system architecture for online operational analytics.”
- Kiriakos Kutalakos, computer science, “Computational and optical processing architectures for next-generation mobile cameras.”
- Gerald Penn, computer science, “Articulatory speech synthesis for natural user interfaces.”
